A gunman killed six and wounded three at a Sikh temple in a Wisconsin suburb Sunday, according to Reuters.

The gunman was described by witnesses as a white man, who entered the Sikh temple through the kitchen, where women were preparing food. Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards said the Federal Bureau of Investigations is overseeing the probe into shootings.

The New York Times reports the shooting ended after the gunman shot a police officer several times, then was shot and killed by another officer in the parking lot.

The three wounded victims were admitted to Froedtert Hospital and are being treated for a shot to the head, one to the abdomen and one for neck injuries, said Nalissa Wienke, hospital spokeswoman.
